C-Suite at Risk: Executive Liability Under the FCPA

Arent Fox’s 2018 edition of the C-Suite at Risk, A Study of Individual Liability Under the FCPA examines every individual charged with a civil or criminal violation of the FCPA since 2005.
  • More than 50 percent of all individuals charged with an FCPA violation were their corporation’s CEO, president, vice-president, or director.
  • The most civil and/or criminal charges arose from bribes occurring in Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
  • Almost all bribes occurring in China, Mexico, and Venezuela resulted in criminal charges.
  • More than one in 10 individuals were charged criminally, even when they only had a general suspicion that bribes could be occurring without any direct confirmation or involvement themselves.
